Tigist is a perfect example where sponsoring a child can make an ALL the difference, we’ll let her tell you how.
Before I was helped by Beyond the Orphanage, I did not have enough to eat or enough clothes to wear. Now I have meals three times a day and enough clothes. I am getting a good education and if I am sick, Beyond the Orphanage arranges for me to go to a doctor. My life is good.
“If it were not for Beyond the Orphanage, I would not have been able to finish my education after both my mother and father died and I started living with my grandmother,” said Tigist.
She continued: “After school, I go to the Drop-In Centre, where I study. I feel I am with my family there. When I leave school I want to go to university to study so I can help other people.”
Tigist will be supported through child sponsorship until she gains a qualification and can support herself.
“Beyond the Orphanage is my everything. I go to school because of it. I am happy because of it. I do not have to worry every day about what tomorrow will be like.”
